Hi all! Carrie here and we’re getting ready to launch into our Lenox Shirtdress sew along, so today I’m here to share some amazing shirtdress inspiration and fun fabric options! There are so many looks you can achieve with a shirtdress depending on your fabric choice and styling. Here are some looks that we love!
A graphic check, a vertical stripe, or an African wax print lend a bold, graphic feel to your shirtdress.
Tanesha, queen of the shirtdress and style icon at Cashmerette HQ, has such a beautiful array of dresses! The red with the lace trim is to die for!
Keep it simple in black and white, but you can still make your shirtdress feel vintage, romantic, or edgy!
Or go for a bold print! The classic shape of the shirtdress helps it carry whimsical prints without feeling too juvenile. Have a fun quilting cotton that you’re dying to make a garment out of? The Lenox might be just the ticket!
On that note, let’s look at some fabrics!
Here are some fun fabrics that we think would make a great Lenox from around the web!
Classic prints in rich color schemes are one of our favorite combinations. The plus signs are a delightful mid-weight cotton. The mustard floral is a rayon challis that has been making the rounds on Instagram like crazy lately! The feathers are a rayon twill, which is one of our favorite substrates. There’s even a few sneaky birds hidden in there!
